Collectible Business Card No.1 by MadPotato Collectible Business Card No.1 by MadPotato
Rebranding madPotato.de... (experimental)

I'm playing with the idea of developing a set of "collectible business cards" that fit the individual client's / job's style (clients who are interested in graphics design could be handed a more boldly designed card than those how i.e. are interested in web-design).

Hi. Was wondering if you've had a chance yet to upload any tutorials regarding the process to create those abstract shapes? I am a designer myself, and REALLY interested in knowing how you did that!! REally cool!!

Hey!
Sadly, I haven't. This is still in the list of things "to do when I finally find the time". Commissioned work is keeping me constantly busy though. But you have my word that there'll eventually be a tutorial on this :)

I don't know about your Photoshop skills, but for now, maybe this'll point you in the right direction: "On a side note: Those abstract forms are no renders but simply Photoshop's Liquify- and Warp-tool used on a snapshot of good old fas[h]ioned grass..."

I like the idea of how you're catering different sets of cards for different clients! I never thought of it that way. I always struggled with the idea too. I haven't yet done any branding for my own work, but I always did wonder, how to cater? Go with sleek business colours and risk alienating softer-themed industries (like food, arts, etc) or go more feminine colours, but lose male clients? It's always hair-raising. But this strategy kind of eliminates some of the struggle, since you can carefully cater at least the handouts to your client's business.

I like it!

Love this so much. This is exactly what I was thinking about for my own business card, but wasn't sure if it was too bold or something. Wow this totally convinced me that when it's done well it can go as bold as one want's it.

I was really worrying about the same thing but I've only received positive feedback so far and -to be honest- I wanted a bold statement that expresses that I'm not your "average, everyday design guy" but someone who thinks out of the box.

Go for it :)

Good input! I saw that ninja-star card a while back and was intrigued by the fold-out design but wanted to design something that stands out yet fits any wallet or card-holder - I might however design a special edition one day that utilizes some kind of fold-out technique.

Glad you like it, mate !

That's the reason why I just love Photoshop so much, you can almost use anything to come with something totally unexpected. (I should finally buy some Adobe-stock :))

and you used only the liquify tool??
Reply
:iconmadpotato:
MadPotato Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2009
The main shapes were created using the liquify tool on the photo of grass. I then cut out parts and further transformed them using the warp tool. The rest is some added shading using my WACOM and the blur-filter. The eyes and teeth of the "monsters" were added using the standard vector shape-tools.

I might actually write a tutorial on this as this seems like a technique worth sharing in more detail.

So how's your business going, hope the jobs are rolling in? By the way: I'm pretty busy myself but I never forgot your little idea to collab on a grafitti-piece one day...

On a side note: Those abstract forms are no renders but simply Photoshop's Liquify- and Warp-tool used on a snapshot of good old fasioned grass...
